The Brook, Portswood [Music Venue]
The Brook is a lively, diverse and successful Independent Music Venue located in Portswood, Southampton.It is a large and beautiful old building full of character and charm, yet still remains an intimate concert venue, where all who want can get up close and personal with the bands. We boast fantastic sounds thanks to the split-level layout, with superb facilities ~ the wide stage is complimented by an equally wide dance floor, both of which are overlooked by a wrap-around balcony that gives a perfect view of the performance.The Brook is for artists and customers who are lovers of this unrivalled atmosphere be it with an audience of 300 or at the 550 capacity. It is for those who are excited by the variety of high quality music on offer, and reaches out to a local and wider community and even an international fan base.The venue has played host to a wide spectrum of artists, including Bill Wyman, Alabama 3, The Hoosiers, Scouting for Girls and the late John Martyn. In fact, the real and whole reason The Brook is here is because we had a vision to get John Martyn to pay in our froom…he did and The Brook became our front room! He subsequently returned for a further four brilliant performances that won’t be forgotten by those who came.More recently, The Brook has welcomed onto its stage the brilliant Passenger (who, incidentally penned the very successful “Heart’s On Fire” at the end of our bar!), Jess Glynn, Rixton, Mel C (with the sensational SAS Band), Pubic Service Broadcasting, Tom O’Dell and Lucy Rose.We pride ourselves on our enriched music ‘menu’ and continue to host a wealth of fantastic, Tribute acts and a steady flow of highly respected Heritage Rock Bands. The Brook has earned kudos with its loyal customers, who are never disappointed by the energy, quality and enthusiasm of the bands and the atmosphere and great night they always experience here at The Brook.Since opening in 1994, we have built and maintained an enviable reputation with both artists and customers who regularly return for the next brilliant show. We know that all who come: visiting artists, whether established or up and coming; and valued customers, all relish the opportunity to perform or listen to music in such a capacious yet welcoming, intimate venue.Do come and visit us. We’d love to see you here ☺www.the-brook.comSouthampton’s Friendliest Live Music VenueLive music is always charged for.
